Make a plan. Be a voter.
This year women of color worked together, turning out in record numbers on Nov. 3rd. But the work isn’t over yet. Both of the Georgia Senate races were so close on Nov. 3rd that there’s going to be a runoff election on Jan. 5th. Women of color turned out in Georgia to make their voices heard, and we can do it again.
The voter registration deadline for the Georgia Senate runoff has passed (Monday, Dec. 7.), but if you are registered and have requested your absentee ballot, here’s what to expect next:
Requesting an absentee ballot, or a mail-in ballot, is one of many options to make your vote count, especially during a pandemic. We recommended requesting your ballot by Dec. 8th to ensure you had enough time to receive and return it.
Ballots will be mailed to voters starting Nov. 18th, so keep an eye on the mailbox!
Ballots are due back by 7pm on Election Day!
First, fill out your mail-in ballot according to the directions.
To submit your ballot, you can drop your ballot in the mailbox, an official dropbox, or submit in-person at your local elections office.
Dates to keep in mind: Deadline to return mail in ballot is Dec. 23. After that, folks should use a dropbox or submit in person (deadline Jan 5).
Once you’ve submitted your ballot, the next step is to make sure it’s received and accepted, so be sure to track your ballot!
Voting early in-person is a safe way to make your voice heard this year. Georgians can vote early from Dec.14 – Dec. 31 at an Early Voting Site. Find the one closest to you here.
